Umeå Arctic Seminar: "Greening of the Arctic"

Time Thursday 22 September, 2022 at 12:00 - 13:00
Place To be updated

Climate change is increasingly warming up Arctic ecosystems and removing climate envelops for vegetation. In response, a general increased vegetation productivity trend has been observed in satellite imagery. However, despite driving forces of climate change pressuring these systems, we do not see a uniform linear response of vegetation.

In January 2022, Matthias Siewert, researcher at the Department of ecology and environmental sciences and associated with the Arctic Centre at Umeå University (Arcum), received funding from The Swedish Research Coluncil for a study on this phenomenon, with a final aim to get a landscape understanding of future changes in Arctic carbon balances on a 100-year time horizon, in correspondence to SDG number 13 (Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts).

This lunch seminar is arranged by Arctic Centre at Umeå university (Arcum) as a part of the Umeå Arctic Seminars (UAS) series.
